Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Vamos, Crete your home away from home

The Vamos municipality of Crete is a wonderful rural area encompassing mountains, native woodland and wild coastlines, adorned with beautifully peaceful Cretan villages. The whole Vamos area is one of wild natural beauty, still largely untouched by the hands of tourism in Greece, providing the perfect escape throughout the year. If the staggering peace afforded by Vamos lettings, and the wider Chania area are not enough of an incentive to explore the region, the stunning beaches and glorious countryside will be!

Things to do on holiday in Vamos, Crete

The coastline of Vamos is amazingly rugged, meaning that although you will never have any trouble finding a stunning, serene stretch of sand on which to lay your towel, access to the beaches can be steep or taxing in some places. However, for such untamed natural beauty, scrambling over a couple of rocks is a very small price to pay!

If you are looking to settle in with the locals, enjoy the traditional Cretan culture of the area and truly immerse yourself in the relaxing Mediterranean lifestyle, a holiday home in Vamos is the perfect answer. Almost every white washed stone street hides a local taverna, restaurant or café, and old buildings have been lovingly restored.

If you are lucky enough to have access to Vamos accommodation in April, you can join the festivities of the Hochlidovradia or snail’s eve! A huge feast of snails, cooked in various Cretan ways is the focal point for the festival, although there is plenty of music and dancing to enjoy if your appetite is not suitably encouraged!

Places to visit on holiday in Vamos, Crete

The village of Vamos itself is a hugely traditional Cretan village, with wide, stone paved streets bordered by wonderfully overgrown stone walls which give the whole village a fantastically natural, timeless atmosphere. The traditional cafes, or kefeneion, make fantastic places to sit for an hour or so, planning your day, watching the world drift slowly by and soaking in the sun, but be warned, many, many hours can be lost to their charm! There are two beautiful churches in Vamos, the Agios Nikolaos and the Agios Georgios, both of which make for stunning viewing, both inside and out.

Weather in Vamos, Crete

A self catering Vamos letting is a wonderful escape at any time of year. In the summer months, temperatures are blissfully warm in the area without ever becoming uncomfortably hot. Average temperatures in July and August reach 27°C, with daily peaks usually reaching 35°C but not much more. In the winter months, you are unlikely to find temperatures dipping below 10°C.

Travel to Vamos, Crete

Holiday rental accommodation in Vamos is very easy to reach from the UK. ThomsonFly offer cheap flights to Vamos via Chania International Airport (CHQ) just 30km to the east. There are a range of airport transfer options too, from the popular hire car option to the frequent taxi and bus services which run (slightly sporadically) from the airport.

Review for stay from 20 July 2018 to 27 July 2018

5 of 5
"Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit! Wir waren als Paar mit unseren Dreijährigen Zwillingen und einer Freundin in dem geräumigen schönen Haus von Nikos und allen hat es gut gefallen. Das Haus mit Garten und Pool ist sehr gepflegt und super schön! Wir wurden mit Wein, Brot, Obst und Gemüse begrüßt und durften in unserer Zeit dort selbstgemachten Wein und Raki kosten. Die Gastgeber waren ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und bei Bedarf sofort vor Ort. Auch das Pferd von Nikos durften wir reiten. Nebenan gibt es ein weiteres sehr ähnliches Ferienhaus von dem man jedoch wenig mitbekommt. Vryses ist sehr nah, dort gibt es ein paar Restaurants, Bäcker und kleine Supermärkte. Mit dem Auto sind mehrere Strände gut erreichbar zum Beispiel Almyrida mit klarstem, türkisem Wasser. Vielen lieben Dank für die tolle Zeit!"

Great views! Excellent pool!

5 of 5
We have just spent 2 excellent weeks at Stella Maris. The photos didn’t do justice to the views. Sometimes the photos are cleverly taken to give the impression of an amazing view, but then you arrive at the villa and the view is not as it seemed. Not so at Stella Maris. The view was amazing almost wherever you looked! We made great use of the pool. A great size, and plenty of outdoor furniture, and shade to be found somewhere at most times of day. There is a covered veranda upstairs too. We used this at the beginning but I’m unsure why we didn’t make more use of this area! Perhaps because this was the one place there was no view! The kitchen was well kitted out. We made good use of the fridge in the cellar for overflow, mainly to keep drinks cool. But of course whenever you wanted something it was always in the fridge in the cellar not in the kitchen!! If I was to fault the kitchen facilities it would be to say bigger dinner plates would have been better! But there was plenty of everything you might need in there. Also it would have been better to have long BBQ tongs as we found the BBQ was ferocious when it got windy. Lastly we loved the local beach. Great for snorkelling and only a few minutes walk from the house. We could not understand why we never saw anyone else walking!! Oh and we found a copy of Mamma Mia on the shelf. My 3 daughters thought this most fitting as we were on a Greek Island and of course we had to watch it! Thanks Sally. Always very helpful when I asked questions and very quick to respond.
